I also rented a Rug Doctor to clean the carpets - OMG - I couldn't believe how much DIRT it got out!! Who knew carpets could be so filthy. I'm glad I did it and not a professional service - I would have been so embarrassed. I do plan to have a professional service come in after all the furniture is moved out, but at least it won't be *so* bad then.
Haven't done much stitching lately. Been scrapbooking and doing genealogy instead. Since the first challenge I did below, I have done four more challenges. Over at DigiScrapShak.com, if you complete 4 challenges in the month of September, you get kit freebie. Hello! I just posted my four challenges over there. Can't wait to get the kit.
